No need to apologise what so ever. It is my feeling that we (Canada) has whats coming to us. Our government has allowed our country to be so
dependant on the US for trade that without them we cant seem to survive.
I also agree with you that i never thought we were so intertangled with the states until recently....just look at our Economy, I know every one is
hurting but if you look our economy has been exact mirriors of each other since this whole situation started.
And It's our own fault. Our national resources are given to the US at a low price by our government, it's quite funny actually when you look at our
oil and gas piplines...they all flow north of the border.
China has been trying to get into our national resources for years, they have even offered to pay premium prices for said resources, but our
Government always seems to worried about upsetting the US governmnet that we say no.....and as such now we cant get away from the US when dealing with
our major assests....through contracts and bills it's almost impossible for Canada to trade with anyone else now.
And like I said, that is noones fault but out Canadian Government and our people for allowing the government to do it.
So for me personally, and thia is just me I truely believe that because of what we have allowed to happen if the US economy falls I'll look staright
north to see which country falls second.
As for people in the US not knowing about Canada and how much our country is involved in the US interests, that has many opinions and people views on
it, I have my own but I dont think it's the time or the place to be speaking of such things.
I Like the US, i think it's a great country, a great trading partner, and all in all the people who live in the US are great people.
